September Inspirations by Catherine Giguère

 'My Happy Place'

Hello 2Crafty fans! Catherine here with you today to share two new layouts.

For this layout, I first made a textured background with doilies that I tear 
up and that I glued with Matte Medium Gel on my paper.

I put drops of pink, coral and purple inks on my collage. I added white 
sand grit to add even more texture. 

I embossed my chipboards 'Flourish 2' with purple embossing powder and my 
title 'My Happy Place' with brown powder to add contrast.

2 Crafty Products Used:
- My Happy Place
- Flourish 2


For this layout, I didn't make a background with doilies as usual. I made my background with a square stencil and modeling paste. Then, I applied blue and green inks with water to make a watercolor effect. I stamped my background with brown ink.

Then, I embossed my chipboards 'Interlocking Grid Panel' with gold and a
little bit of black powder. 

I painted my title 'Cherish' with gold paint.
 I added white sand grit and blue flakes to add texture.

2 Crafty products used:
- Cherish Loopy Font
- Interlocking Grid Panel

I hope that I have inspired you, have a nice crafty day!
